    Whether you swim, paddle, or simply enjoy a stroll on one of the Sefton beaches, you can be assured, once again, that the quality of the water is cleaner than at any time in the last 30 years.









    For the second year in a row the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has published statistics that reveal that all 31 of the North West’s bathing waters meet the government’s required standards for water quality.



    The 2017 classifications of bathing waters in Sefton are;

    Formby beach has been rated Excellent – the highest, cleanest class;
    Southport and Ainsdale have been rated Good – generally good water quality.
    Full classifications can be found here: www.environment.data.gov.uk/bwq/profiles/

    A range of stakeholders have contributed to reducing pollution and improving the regions rivers, lakes and the sea, including the Environment Agency, United Utilities and the local community.



    You can continue to help maintain, and improve, these standards by making small changes at home and at the beach:

    • Only flush the 3P’s down the toilet – poo, pee and paper. Everything else goes in the bin!

    • Pour cooled kitchen fats in the bin, not down the sink – it can cause blockages and sewage to overflow.

    • Pick up after your dog and put it in the bin.

    • Don’t feed birds at the beach and keep outdoor areas free of food waste.

    • Always put litter in the bin or take it home if it’s full.
